Works fine for me in 3.3.4. Can you attach the score with the problem?

BTW, "Blocker" means the program won't run at all. "Critical" means crash or loss of data. This would be "major"

Maybe depends on synth/soundfont settings? The Trill notes don't play for me, not just no trill but no sound at all. Curiously, though, one of the notes that doesn't have a trill is playing with a trill. Was that some sort of plugin magic? Also, sometimes I get just the very first of the trill to play.

In my brief tests it indeed depends on single note dynamics: turning single note dynamics on or off in Staff/Part properties effectively enables or disables this bug.

In reply to by BSG

For what it's worth, my original problem was to trill on a half-note in cut-time tempo, where thirty-second notes weren't working for me, so I wanted to use the trill plugin (and it worked fine), but I could not get the graphic (a non-operative trill) without killing the sound. I didn't search the F2 menu of the graphic alone.

Fixed in branch master, commit 9a8d4fa50e

_fix #298188: fix not playing a note if its articulation playback is turned off

Complements the fix in c1365329758d18f6f71583059c007ff31d6b1f7c to
take "play" property of articulations into account in MIDI rendering.

Also fix a test for this to be actually executed and to cover the
case of single-note dynamics MIDI rendering._
